Boatest's VXR review is out. It gives an in depth view of the ski.
Thought I would share for those who haven't seen it.

Yamaha VXR (2011-) Test Result Highlights
* Top speed for the Yamaha VXR (2011-) is 68.4 MPH (110.1 KPH), burning 13.5 gallons per hour (GPH) or 51.1 liters per hour (LPH).
* Best cruise for the Yamaha VXR (2011-) is 38.0 MPH (61.2 KPH), and the boat gets 7.74 miles per gallon (MPG) or 3.29 kilometers per liter (KPL), giving the boat a cruising range of 111 miles (178.64 kilometers).
* Tested power is 1 x Yamaha 1812cc, four cylinder, four-stroke.
* Time from 0 to 30 of the Yamaha VXR (2011-) is 1.8 sec. seconds.
That's VERY impressive fuel mileage. For comparison, a SeaDoo RXT-X at WOT burns 18 GHP, for the SAME SPEED. And, cruise for the T-X is around the same speed as the VXR, but gets 5 mpg(I've tested this many, many times)!!!
Now, if I could just get a chance to get my hands on it, to give it a "proper" test ride, life would be good.
I've used the boattest.com fuel mileage/burn chart for my 2008 SeaDoo RXT-X and tested it out, and their calculations were dead on with my GPS. So their data, in my opinion, is pretty good.

I dont understand why this ski is so magical, its hardly short (longer than an RXP-X, bit shorter than an FZR)
Its only marginally lighter than the RXP-X
RXP-X 121" 774lb
FZR 132.7" 807lb
VXR 128.7" 728lb

Also the FXHO gets pretty much the same consumption.
So what's new?

^ It's a 70 mph naturally aspirated ski. I for one think that is pretty amazing.
